Remark by Foreign Ministry Spokesman Luong Thanh Nghi on Chinese recent actions violating Viet Nam's sovereignty in Hoang Sa Archipelago

In response to questions from AP, Kyodo News and Asahi Shimbun regarding Viet Nam’s reaction to Chinese tour operation in Hoang Sa (Paracel) Archipelago and its other recent actions, such as sending high-ranking officials to attend the opening of Xinhua bookstore in Phu Lam (Woody) Island, and organizing fishing competition in the area of Hoang Sa Archipelago, Vietnam Foreign Ministry Spokesman Luong Thanh Nghi on April 30th 2013 said:

“Viet Nam affirms its indisputable sovereignty over Hoang Sa Archipelago.

Those actions by the Chinese side seriously violate the sovereignty of Viet Nam, go against the Agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of maritime issues between Viet Nam and China and are not in line with DOC and the Declaration of ASEAN and China Summit commemorating the 10th anniversary of the DOC. These moves cause tensions and complicate the situation in the East Sea.

We ask China to cease these wrongful actions and refrain from undermining peace and stability in the East Sea.”

On the same day, in reaction to Chinese tour operation in Hoang Sa Archipelago, Chairman of the People’s Committee of Da Nang City Van Huu Chien stated:

“Hoang Sa Archipelago is an integral part of Vietnamese territory and an island district under the jurisdiction of Da Nang City.

China violated the sovereignty of Viet Nam when it brought tourists to Hoang Sa Archipelago. This action causes discontent among the people and authorities of Da Nang.

We strongly protest this illegal action and ask China to immediately terminate its tourism and other activities in Hoang Sa Archipelago.”
